Using Manuka Honey on Caesarean Section Wounds

Thursday, 6 March 2014  |  Admin

The BBC has recently reported on a pilot study where honey was smeared on the scars of women who have had Caesarean sections, resulting in infection rates being cut by half.

Although this is a new study carried out in the UK - at the Royal Hampshire Hospital - it is not the first time honey is being used for this purpose, with previous examples in other countries too.

It is very important to state that when applying on wounds, whether from Caesarean section or other surgery, that a proper medical grade honey is used, which has been sterilised.

With regard to manuka honey, it is important to repeat that the benefits of manuka honey and the supporting research behind it are based on the existence of a unique additional property that only some manuka contains. This non-peroxide activity provides special attributes over and above the hydrogen peroxide activity that is common to all honeys, and adds additional antibacterial power.

The main downside to using honey on a caesarean section of other wound is of a practical nature, in terms of its stickiness. However if you can deal with that aspect, then the infection fighting and healing benefits are worth considering.
